Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry
Very Good 4.0/5
(244 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: This tasted good, but not amazing. I did not change the recipe or get any different ingredients, but when I calculated the calories myself, they were almost double what is listed. It was somewhat bland too. We added sriracha to the leftovers and it tasted quite a bit better.

Noodles with Easy Peanut Sauce
Very Good 4.1/5
(73 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Very good! My husband raved about it and fought me for leftovers. I would probably like it better with almost double the sauce, but then it wouldn't be as low calories ;)

Orange Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5
(136 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: It tasted decent with some sriracha added, but I don't think I'll make it again without some major tweaks. Far too much thyme, and I usually love thyme.

Very Good 4.8/5

Cookbook creator says: Very tasty! It doesn't taste quite as good as the naan I'm used to at restaurants, but those are probably dripping in ghee, so this is a great healthier alternative.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(34 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(65 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.
